Inaugural White Truck Road Trip

There was no deep mud. No death-defying rocky climbs. No high-speed jumps. No days on end without civilization. But there was four-wheeling, low range, and a good time had by all.

Our '10 Dodge 3500 Project White Truck was on hand with its new Caravan Campers off-road shell, which is perfect for two people and one dog to sleep in. Find out more about it and the other upgrades in current and future issues. (Our truck also has six-speed manual transmission.)

We're talking about the inaugural White Truck Road Trip. While assembling our Project White Truck Dodge 3500 we've noticed that quite a few of our friends also own white 4x4 pickups, so we put out an invite to a fun camping weekend in fullsize white 4x4s. If you're hardcore and you only like buggies, Boggers, and high-speed fiberglass, then this may seem boring to you, but if you're like most of us who could use a weekend out in the dirt to relax and just explore, then consider having your own White Truck Road Trip. We're already looking forward to the next one.

Our troop of four white fullsize trucks met up in Ridgecrest, California, the day after Thanksgiving and then convoyed out to Ballarat, California. Ballarat is a blip on the map and the last place to find any supplies before heading into the western side of Death Valley National Park. We opted to skip DV and instead explore the mining areas west of the park for easier camping.
